Reuters reports that an Indian villager was taken to hospital after he bit a rabid dog which attacked his duck. A rabid dog, which had been frightening village residents for the past few weeks, stole a duck from Pappan's home. In a fit of anger, the farmer sprang on the animal and the two fell into a muddy ditch fighting. The dog bit the man's hand and the latter sank his teeth into the animal's neck with all his might, so hard that he drew blood. Only after both the man and the animal were exhausted did local residents come to Pappan's rescue clubbing the canine to death. The man is being treated in the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram for rabies.
